Collecting Seed from Louisiana Native Plants

Saturday, September 21, 2019, 10:30 AM

Steve will discuss collecting and storing seed and some methods of propagating native wildflowers and grasses of Louisiana. He will touch on the requirements of specific species and will focus on those species that are hardest to grow. Feel free to bring questions about plants you may be interested in growing in your garden. Steve Nevitt; I am a consulting geoscientist in Lafayette, Louisiana and the current president of the Cajun Prairie Habitat Preservation Society.

I am currently in process of co-founding a grassland restoration landscape design and consulting firm with Blazing Star Flower Farm owner Jacob Delahoussaye. We recently helped students establish a vibrant Cajun Prairie Garden on the Youngsville Ascension Episcopal School campus to help provide a biologically diverse educational experience for students.
